    Hi , are there restrictions on how much or quickly you pay off purchases or are you only able to make minimum repayments ? Thanks

    Jess | September 3, 2015

    Hi,
    I signed up to this via your website but have been charged interest in purchases despite paying minimum repayment on time. Also the statement from bankwest says promotional rate is 0% for balance transfers for 14 months from first statement and now 13 months second statement. Your offer says purchases. Do I contact bank to fix this?

    • Staff
      Sally | September 8, 2015

      Hi Jess,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Please note that the offer 0% p.a. on purchases for 13 months is an exclusive offer to finder.com.au, and does not come with a balance transfer offer.

      However, it would be best to contact Bankwest directly to allow you to inquire specifically about this account issue.

      You may refer to the link I have sent to your email for the contact details.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,

      Sally

    I am not sure if I 100% understand an earlier question on balance transfers. Can clarify that if for example in the first month of having the card I did a balance transfer from an existing card of say $5000 and then I also purchased another $5000 of items using the new card that the entire $10k would not attract interest for the first 13 months?

    • Staff
      Jonathan | June 17, 2015

      Hi Tim, thanks for your inquiry!

      Please note that this credit card does not come with a balance transfer offer. As such only your purchases would be covered under the offer of 0% interest free for 13 months.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan

    Hi, I am thinking of taking up this offer to purchase a saddle. Once it is paid for, can I then cancel the card as I will no longer require it? Is there a cancellation fee?

    • Staff
      sally.mcmullen@hiveempire.com | June 15, 2015

      Hi Kerrie,

      Thanks for your question.

      As explained in the Bankwest fees guide, if you close your account at a branch there is no fee. If you close it any other way (e.g. over the phone), you will incur a closure fee of $10.00.

      I hope this has answered your question.

      Thanks,

      Sally

      Hi Andrew,

      Thank you for your question.

      As finder.com.au is an online comparison service, not a provider, you can’t actually apply for Bankwest Breeze Classic MasterCard on our site.

      However, as you mentioned, if you click through to the large green ‘Go to Site’ button on the right-hand side of our Bankwest Breeze Classic MasterCard page here, you will be transferred through to the Bankwest Breeze Classic MasterCard exclusive offer application page.

      I hope this has answered your question.

      Thanks,

      Sally

    Nathan | April 21, 2015

    Hey just wondering what cash advance mean?

    can i just take a certain amount out in cash and pay no interest on it if i pay back in the 13 months ?

    • Staff
      Jonathan | April 22, 2015

      Hi Nathan, thanks for your inquiry!

      Cash advance qualifies as cash withdrawals from ATM’s and transactions that are not purchases (bill payments etc). Unfortunately there is no interest free features available for withdrawing cash for credit cards. Balance transfers from a personal loan to a credit card are available on this page.

      Cheers,

      Jonathan
